Vizztone recording artist Patti Park's riveting performances pay homage to the blues women of the past and take the music to a soulful place. Every show is a good time, where fans enjoy dancing and feeling something profound.
Patti shares her life experiences through the lyrics and profoundly connects with everyone who hears her. As a creative person, Patti is willing to explore the full range of the blues genre and beyond.
Recently appearing on SiriusXM B.B. King’s Bluesville, her recorded collaboration with Kenny Neal and other musicians has opened other worlds for her and her audience.
Her first album, “Cheat’n Man,” received outstanding reviews from Blues Music Magazines such as “Blues Blast Magazine.” Patti’s last album ,” Whole Nother World” produced by American Blues Man Kenny Neal and recorded in Baton Rouge Louisana, received this review:
"Patti Parks has found a way to match her love for blues with her life’s most meaningful work – one of the best examples of the well-worn cliché that music is a healing force. She is the embodiment of it." —Making a Scene, album review by Jim Hynes.
A new album recorded with Johnny Rawls, is scheduled for release January 2024.
